Kokua Beta 3.4.3.25470

Using Kokua Beta 3.4.2, some opensim grids experienced texture range message spam as outlined here. With test assistance from Marcus Llewellyn (osgrid region owner)  we determined that lindenlab (LL) viewer-beta 3.4.3 no longer caused grid console message spam.

Earlier today LL merged viewer-beta to viewer-release. So, that code is now go to go for third party viewers.

Below please find a  restate of the features from 3.4.2. Nothing has been added as this is a code base upgrade.

Feature catch-up with pie menus optional and defaulted to pie.
Audio stream titles now display in chat and can be turned off or directed to a custom chat channel through debug settings.
Based on user feedback, these settings may be moved to preferences in a later release.
Invite to group from profile made clearer with the button “Invite” instead of a “+”. As in the LL viewer, invite to group is available in right click avatar context.

Detail of changes can be found by review of commits available here.

There are some linked library differences between linux 32 and 64 bit platforms. If you are a user who can please run both and provide a performance comparison.

Kokua-3-4-2/25211 spam texture fetch messages on opensim grids

Update:

*************************************************************************************************************************

Additional testing shows that the problem is deeper than this one changeset. My test build worked fine with a local opensim grid and the viewer on the same machine. Once separated by network the problem would come and go.

kokua-dev is set back to public. I suggest if use of 3.4.1/24900 on opensim grids that have not updated.

I have not seen spammed logs on that version. With 1000 downloads of that version, if  the issue was there it stands to reason that it would have been reported.

Grid operators may want to ban kokua 3-4-2 and SL 3.4.2 until after simulator updates.

**********************************************************************************************************************

This problem is from LL’s 3.4.2 code. I have identified it to changeset https://bitbucket.org/lindenlab/viewer-release/commits/eeb7464542b8c4a23f8cf98c4490be7419207eb5

I have backed out this changeset and will provide new downloads later today. I mean time the kokua-dev repository is set private to prevent additional issues for opensim grid operators that have yet to update to the latest master version.  Osgrid updated to master (10-12 hours ago) and that  corrected the spam issue there.

The messages on the opensim server console are like:

2012-12-05 19:22:44,159 WARN  - OpenSim.Capabilities.Handlers.GetTextureHandler [GETTEXTURE] : Malformed Range header: bytes=2048-

The corresponding messages in the viewer log are like:

2012-12-06T02:11:54Z INFO: newview/lltexturefetch.cpp(1307) : LLTextureFetchWorker::doWork: HTTP GET failed for: http://192.168.1.5:9000/CAPS/1bbf6e51-ff38-4dbf-b790-f22d9f368f75//?texture_id=abb783e6-3e93-26c0-248a-247666855da3 Status: 400 Reason: ” Attempt:4/4

This did not occur on SL grids.

The message spam is no longer present once the above referenced changeset is backed out. No apparent ill effects were noticed when logged to SL beta grid using a test viewer with the offended changeset backed out.
